​Applications for the 92nd edition have started

Poděbrady Walking is on the threshold of the next edition and registration opens on Tuesday, February 6.

Registration takes place online on the race website (www.podebrady-walking.cz) in the Race Entry section, both for the World Athletics meeting and for accompanying races. You can register from Tuesday, February 6, 2024 to Sunday, March 31, 2024 (11:59 p.m.).

Poděbrady Walking is also part of the World Athletics Race Walking Tour series in 2024, namely its highest Gold category. They are therefore an ideal way to meet the strict entry standards for the Olympic Games or the European Championships, or to add a generous bonus to the ranking, which is the other way to qualify for the top events of the season.

About the meeting

The history of pedestrian races connected with Podebrady dates back to the 19th century. However, the long tradition is certainly not dying out at the moment, on the contrary. Its freshness is evidenced by a number of recent events.

In 1997 Czech athletics celebrated one hundred years with a successful World Cup in Poděbrady. In the 2017 season, the European Cup was held here on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the domestic "queen of sports". In 2021 and 2023, Podebrady hosted the European Race Walking Team Championships, this event will return here for the third time next year.

The sporting level of Poděbrady is evidenced by the fact that in the quality assessment according to the WA methodology, both the meeting and the European championships are traditionally in the highest ranks among the wakling events. In the ranking, which monitors performances and also takes into account the level of the participants themselves, the European championship last year (shared with Slovakia's Dudince) took first place.
